David, what I so appreciate about your comment is that you’ve embrace life with such gusto. I’ve also taken dancing lessons,and what I noticed was how much joie de vivre people have when they move to music. So much of how we evolve well has to do first with accepting that first, we are going to age, and then second, being willing to keep right on asking the body for performance. We now know so much more about what our bodies are capable of, and as we study our unique selves and push our capacity, the quality of life expands in response. Injuries are a given if we’re going to engage in life. However, so many injuries among those of us in our sixties and older have more to do with the toxic meds we take which interfere with our balance and our mental competence. As far as I’m concerned, the more we take our medicine from our food to empower the body to be well, and then exercise to entice the body to be strong, we are set for a very happy aging process. Thanks for your comments.
